John Legend has finally released his long awaited track 'Preach'.
The song was first teased in June of 2018, when he began performing the song live, prompting people to stand up for what they believe is right, and that we have to be the change we want to see in the world, with lyrics that read "I can't just sit and hope that / can't just sit and pray that I can find a love when all I see is pain / Falling to my knees / and though I do believe / I can't just preach baby, preach".
The passionate single was inspired by Legend's faith. stating in an interview: "I grew up in the church and one of the things we talked about was loving our neighbors as we love ourselves. My preacher told me that our neighbor wasn't just the person that lives next door to you but other people whom you might not even know."
